Yeah, that's right. It was a complete accident. No, I don't expect you to believe me. But, I swear, it was.
See, I can explain…
It was a late night at the office and I was very tired. My sexy wife, Alicia, texted me a nude selfie, telling me that there was a surprise waiting in our bed when I got home.
That excited me. I thought about that surprise and got myself all horny and leaky with pre-cum until it was time to go home. I raced inside, threw off my uncomfortable clothes and tip-toed into the bedroom.
I expected to see my wife sprawled out on the bed, completely naked, her luscious, red-haired body ready for my inspection. But I was puzzled when the room was not only dark, but silent.
My heart beat faster. Was something wrong?
I slowly crept up to my bed, felt around and smiled when I felt my wife's body. But it really wasn't my wife's body and I didn't know it. See, we'd had some financial troubles and had to move back in with my mother.
"I'm home..." I whispered into my wife's ear (I'll call her mother from now on as it certainly wasn't my wife).
I shook her.
Then I smiled. We'd talked about playing sleep sex. This must be the surprise. I didn't know at the time that mom took some Ambien and was out like a light. She must've stumbled into our room by accident.
My cock jumped nearly out of my pants as I thought about fucking my wife/mother (I know, this is weird, even still) in her sleep. I started at her feet and legs and kissed every inch of her delectable body. Mom's skin was so smooth and silky.
I kissed her little toes and tickled them, seeing if she'd awaken, but she didn't. Good. I dove under the covers and spread open mom's legs. The heat of her fiery cunt nearly drove me insane. I'd never smelled my wife's juices so powerful before. If I had been thinking straight, I would've started to piece things together.
But, alas, I wasn't.
What have I gotten myself into?Surrounded by people I don't trust, pretending to be something I'm not.It sounds like my first days at Beast Academy, but this time I'm surrounded by people who wouldn't hesitate to kill me if they knew the truth.The witches have sworn to help me, but if they don't come through, I'll never see my men again.USA Today Bestselling Author Becca Fanning is proud to bring you this Reverse Harem Academy Romance serial, packed with all the action, intrigue and great chemistry you can handle!
